Anna Nicole Smith Update

Thanks to Vince Keenan for the link.

Variety.com - Ford to star in 'Anna Nicole' film: "Dancer-singer Willa Ford has signed to star as Anna Nicole Smith in an indie biopic that will begin shooting next week.

The previously announced film, 'Anna Nicole,' is produced by Jack Nasser and Joseph Nasser with Elie Samaha exec producing. Keoni Waxman directs.

Movie will cover Smith's life from age 17 until her death in February at 39, including her success as a Playboy centerfold, Guess model and actress, her marriage to billionaire oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II, the death of her son and her own death five months after giving birth to a baby girl, Dannielynn. The dispute that erupted over who was the baby's father was settled Tuesday when a judge in the Bahamas ruled, based on DNA tests, in favor of California photographer and former Smith boyfriend Larry Birkhead."

Someone needs to put me in charge of Hollywood so that - if they *insist* on making this - I can cast Kristy Swanson.

Oh, the heady days of the Buffy movie when she was thisclose to being a gigantic star.

I loved her in the Buffy movie! I also thought she was great in The Phantom. She reads the novelization of the Buffy movie, too. I have it on tape.
